Shanshan Feng Feng Is First Chinese World Number One

With a superb couple weeks on the course, Feng will ascend to the top of the world rankings when they are released on Monday, becoming the first golfer from China to do so.

Feng, who started the week third in the world, is projected to rise to top spot at the expense of South Korean rookie Park Sung-Hyun, the LPGA said.

"I'm really, really excited and very proud of myself and I think it's special because I won this tournament to become world number one", Feng said.

No man or woman from China had ever sat atop the golf rankings, but that changed on Saturday when the 28-year-old Feng triumphed on home soil at Hainan Island to claim a second successive LPGA Tour victory.

Moriya, the older sister of world No. 9 Ariya Jutanugarn (73) who finished nine strokes off the pace, lamented another opportunity lost to win her first US LPGA title. After Feng bogied two of her final three holes of the third round and the elder of the Thai sisters fired a 68 to emerge as the local favourite's nearest challenger. PHOTO: Zhe Ji/Getty Images.

"I was not trying to watch [Moriya] because I know that. even though she made it, I still have to make my par putt. I'm pretty happy with what's happened", an optimistic Jutanugarn said after the final round.

In 2012, Feng captured her only career major title when she earned a two-stroke win at the Wegmans LPGA Championship. As well as the top ranking. Her first coming at the 2013 Reignwood LPGA Classic.

With both players tied at nine-under through 12 holes, the 13th hole proved the difference as Feng sank a 20-foot birdie putt while playing partner Moriya missed a 10-foot par putt for a two-shot swing.

Becoming the best player in the world makes what was already a good season a great one for Feng. "I mean, she had a really good week in her home country, which is really cool". "And once that was in and I was the champion, I was so delighted".

Feng now heads to the season's final event, the CME Group Tour Championship in Florida in third on the season long standings behind Lexi Thompson and Park.
